This is the right place if you are looking for a quick lunch or late dinner (they are open 24 hrs). The have many options of sandwiches and fresh juices and shakes using local ingredients. The prices are very fair and they serve you the meal for take out or right at the car if you don't want to come... More

The panini style sandwiches are delicious but I would go back for just the milkshake. Make sure you get it "rica" which means sweet. Really cool atmosphere. Old diner set up. Just walk in and take a seat on the stools. Good vibes! Park under the freeway for easy access if you're driving. My wife got the strawberry rica and... More

The food was delicious, the environment was fun, and we got the real Dominican experience. I ordered the strawberry drink along with a sandwich. The drink was my favorite part! It was the BEST milkshake I've ever had. The service was okay, it took them 10 minutes to give us our check after we asked for it. They also do... More

After a night of partying Dominicans in Santo Domingo head to popular old school spot Payan. It became one of my favorite places not only because of their luscious pork leg sandwiches, but because of all of the freshly made juices they offer. It was about 6AM and I was starving after a night of dancing. Try the “Payan Especial”... More

To my opinion this is an average fast food restaurant, 50-60ies style. The passionfruit juice was very nice. The Sandwich I had was average, rather a little on the tasteless side without saying it was bad. Prices are ok. I don't think this place really deserves the hype about it though :-)

Open space, lots of noise from the street, mostly bar seats. Some really good sandwiches (their club sandwich had real chicken, not the processed meat you normally get), delicious fresh juices (really enjoyed the melon) with or without coconut milk. Really good prices. Overall a nice quick lunch, but not something you need to get out of your way to... More

If you're looking for a quick bite and fruit juice this is the place. Usually very busy around lunch time. Quick efficient service and cheap prices.
